520    The first study of queens and princesses in wartime 
       nursing, from Queen Victoria to Queen Elizabeth IIRoyal 
       ladies have never been afraid to roll up their sleeves, 
       work in wards and field hospitals, and help in the 
       operating theater, despite their sheltered upbringing. 
       Indeed, through wars and revolutions in Russia, Greece, 
       Spain, Romania, Belgium, and Britain, their experiences 
       were no different than those of thousands of other nurses.
       Beginning with two daughters of Queen Victoria, Princess 
       Alice and Princess Helena, this book tells their stories 
       and the difficulties queens and princesses faced while 
       carving a worthwhile role in an age when the place of a 
       well-born woman was considered to be in the home. From 
       Empress Alexandra of Russia and Queen Marie of Romania to 
       Princess Marina Duchess of Kent and Princess Alice of 
       Greece (mother of the Duke of Edinburgh), all set an 
       example of service and duty well beyond that considered 
       necessary at the time. Here, their involvement in nursing 
       and the lengths they went to is detailed for the first 
       time.
